The brief also mentioned open kitchen concept for better transparency & visual access. Two edges of the dining area act as a partition wall between two Restaurants. Thus a green barrier was created instead of a partition wall, which acts as an element of nature which further enhances the quality of indoor environment.

Various creepers were planted in few earthen pots, which were hung on the ceiling, creating a lively atmosphere inside the restaurant. The greens of these creepers & brown shade of pots brought in the true essence of nature into the place.

The key motive was to rekindle the touch of nature into this place for better user experience & creating awareness among the people. Gardens are one of the best examples of the symbiotic relationship between human & nature. The intent was to instigate love for ‘Mother Earth’ and the significance of being in harmony with nature.
